How to make Direct Debit Optional

For Owners:

As an owner you can make it optional for tenants to pay rent on Direct Debit or not, giving tenants flexibility on how rent is paid through Cubbi.

Making Direct Debit optional is changing a term of the lease and only the owner has the ability to make Direct Debit optional. Once Direct Debit is made 'optional' by the owner, the tenant will then be able to cancel their Direct Debit schedule and pay rent via other payment options.
